, it is no surprise they are opposing sanctions against russia. the german corporate lobby is very strong. it is a very strong economic relationship between germany and russia. including former german chancellor, who is making a lot of money helping natural gas flow from russia to germany. no surprise. angela merkel is under pressure. host: one of the fundamental flaws of sanctions as a foreign-policy tool? guest: it is limited and a blunt instrument but also there is no other choice. not a lot of other alternatives. politics are flawed, too. germany is russia's's largest trading partner in the eu. they have more economic interest in the u.s. and its owing to be hard to pressure russia and a major way unless the europeans are willing to play. host: let me share what jack lew told members of congress when it came to sanctions and at russia and the wealthy individuals linked to president putin. [video clip] >> if you look at the impact on russia's economy, it is misleading to look at what happens day by day. you have to look over the period of time since russia went into crimea and since we

-- that russia has taken kiev for sea power - natural resources of the sea. as an american, what are we lacking in terms of natural resources? guest: i don't understand the premise of the question. as far as natural resources, the united states is not lacking anything. we have the potential to almost be self-sufficient in resources. the economy is growing today primarily because of energy development on state and private lands. if we were to actually use energy resources on public lands, we could sustain that growth and not have a roller coaster of boom and bust. we have the resources in the united states. areust need to make sure we developing those resources in every form, not just carbon-based fuels. host: here are a couple of tweets -- guest: amen. and there are some perfect examples. we have an area outside of utah which was blm land that they did easter break,one and almost broke into her right down a. finally, they contracted with the county to manage that area in the county now manages it and maximize profit and is one of the premier recreation areas we have in the state of utah if not

trip to asia. he took on his critics over hotspots like russia and syria, while saying his cautious avoids mistakes. what you think of his administration's foreign-policy today? you can also send us a tweet. comments on facebook and e-mail. we will get your thoughts in just a minute. " pieceshington post starts off by saying this. here's what the president had to say. >> typically, criticism of our foreign-policy has been directed at the failure to use military force. the question i think i would have is, why is it that everybody is so eager to use military force? after we have just gone through a decade of war at enormous troops and to our budget? exactly that these critics think would have been accomplished? my job as commander-in-chief is to deploy military force as a last resort, and to deploy it wisely. frankly, most of the foreign-policy commentator set ed our policies would go headlong into a bunch of military adventures at the american people have no interest in participating in and would not advance our core security interests. if you look at syria, for example, our interes

kerry, who again said more sanctions are coming down the pike if russia doesn't change its ways. guest: i think the u.s. government should do what he can within reason to try to deter the russian government -- what it can within reason to try to deter the russian government from interfering in the ukraine. there is an ancient lesson of foreign policy. there is such a thing as the balance of power. for country to maintain its independence, particularly if it is next door to a much more powerful nation, it either needs to muster the power itself to maintain its independence on its own or ally itself with others. ukraine is outside the scope of nato. we talked about poland earlier. poland is not. in the cold war, nato established the balance of power that, for decades, drew the line at the berlin wall. now the line has moved east into eastern europe. i don't think the united states has the means or interest perhaps the means, to use our power to establish a balance of power that protect the sovereignty of the ukraine from russia. ukraine needs to develop an ability to protect its own sove
